Zardozi is an elaborate embroidery technique, originally from Persia. The name is derived from zar or zarin meaning ‘gold’, and dozi meaning sewing. The skilled zardozi craftsmanship traveled to the Indian subcontinent between 1500 and 1200 BC. Intricate designs are created by using gold and silver threads on a fabric base. Fortunately, the resurgence in the zardozi technique has made it back into popular culture. Our gorgeous zardozi shawls are sewn onto a pure cashmere base, couched with metallic threads of soft gold, red and green bugle beads. Luxurious threads, indeed!
